  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) has the responsibility for the whole energy sector. The National Council for Energy Policy (CNPE), composed of government representatives, experts in energy and non-governmental organisations, establishes the energy policy.

    EPE, the Energy Research Company under MME, is in charge of energy planning.

    The energy policy has the following ...

  • Energy Companies


    Petrobras (Federal Government 50.3% of common shares and 28.7% of capital stock) is the national oil and gas company and the largest Brazilian company.

    The company faced a massive corruption scandal in 2016 and is attempting to stabilise its soaring debt by reducing costs, selling assets and cutting capital spending. At end-2019, the company had a net debt estimated at US$78bn, up ...

  • Energy Supply


    Brazil has large energy resources. Proven reserves of oil and condensates are estimated at 1 741 Mt, and gas reserves at 370 bcm (end of 2019). Coal and lignite reserves are at 6.5 Gt. With 156 Mt of uranium, Brazil has the world's 8th largest uranium reserves. The economically exploitable hydroelectric potential is high (763 TWh, i.e. twice the current level of production). The wind energy ...

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices are subject to the approval of ANEEL. Prices have been roughly stable since 2013. In 2019, the average price reached US$19.8c/kWh in the residential sector and US$16.7c/kWh in the industrial sector. These price levels are among the highest in Latin America.


  • Energy Consumption

    With a per capita consumption of 1.4 toe (2019), Brazil is within the average range for semi-industrialised countries but well below the European average of 3.1 toe.

    Total energy consumption has remained stable since 2016 (290 Mtoe in 2019) after a decrease in 2015 and 2016. It increased at a fairly rapid pace between 2000 and 2014 (3.5%/year, on average). it

    Oil is the main ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the 10-Year Energy Expansion Plan 2029 (Plan Decenal de Expansão de Energia 2029, PDE 2029), final energy consumption should grow by an average of 2.6%/year between 2019 and 2029. Electricity consumption is expected to increase by 3.8%/year, oil products by 2.8%/year, gas by 1.3%/year, and coal by 2.3%/year. Oil production should reach 5.5 Mb/d (+7.2%/year) and gas production ...
